Spring is a magical time of year at Champneys Health Retreat! Henlow Grange has a 50-year history as one of the UK’s leading health farms. Just an hour away from London and nestled in 150 acres of parkland, they are an ideal country escape, and a perfect pampering retreat. You can relax on the outdoor loungers, in the steam room, jacuzzi or take a dip in the huge swimming pool. Visit the fully equipped gym or participate in the many classes on offer each day. To make the most of the breath-taking grounds you can enjoy a bike ride or power walk or even a game of tennis!

The food is healthy and delicious. You can have breakfast and lunch in your robe and dress up in the evenings for dinner. Should you feel peckish outside of mealtimes there is a small coffee/tea lounge in the conservatory, serving delicious cakes and smoothies. All rooms are spacious and en-suite (with a complimentary collection of lush toiletries)! You will have a flat screen television, kettle, hair dryer and telephone. Some rooms have private gardens.

Whether you choose to come alone or with a friend/partner, there will be plenty to do. Outside of your scheduled Yoga classes, you can choose to swim, book a spa treatment or read a book and simply relax! This is an opportunity to reset away from daily life. You will leave this 3 day weekend completely recharged and ready for the year ahead (along with a few new friends)! CLICK HERE TO BOOK.

“Nikita brought in yoga, chakra balancing, aromatherapy oils, time in nature, journaling, and her vast wisdom with an openness for all to learn, reflect on and apply at the retreat and beyond. She took time to listen, ask questions and understand my journey and provide guidance in many forms which was instrumental in numerous reflections and realisations I had on and off the mat. As someone rightly shared at the retreat, Nikita was the thread that weaved through the activities, conversations and strong bonds created – bonds which I haven’t felt in a long time!” – Angela – April24

Thank you so much for organising the recent yoga retreat in Henlow.  Nikita was an exceptional teacher who exceeded my expectations with her skill, kindness and communication.  She managed to deliver to everyone’s needs in the group and was just so welcoming.  I wanted to relax, take time out and nourish myself and this is exactly what I got.  Additionally the facilities were amazing, the pool and the spa were stunning, the rooms clean and restaurant great.  I would be very interested in attending anything Nikita does again.”  Julie – Aug23
